In February, 1975, in Northern Ireland, seventeen year-old UVF member Alistair Little kills the catholic Jimmy Griffin in his house in Lurgan in front of his younger brother Joe Griffin. Alistair is arrested and imprisoned for twelve years while Joe is blamed by his mother for not saving his brother. Thirty-three years later, a TV promotes the meeting of Alistair and Joe in a house in River Finn, expecting the truth and the reconciliation of the murderer and the victim who actually seeks five minutes of heaven.

Tonight you will see one of the best films you've seen in years. You might have been searching for something like this. “Five Minutes Of Heaven” is about violence, and how violence shatters lives, and that it does not stop when the violence itself stops. Shot in Northern Ireland, it is a meeting, 25 years later, between the man (Neeson) who in his youth murdered a Catholic for nothing more than being Catholic, and the murdered man's brother. Download “Five Minutes Of Heaven” to be in for a moving experience.

Touching08 October 2009

A touching film about the futility of the Northern Ireland troubles and its victims struggles to come to terms with the past. A potted history from tragic events up to the reconciliation process many years later, detailing how lives were wrecked.

Brilliant acting and patches of black humour.

Very interesting view of a murder in Northern Ireland. Movie captures era and characters views just right. Most scenes are shot in actual locations which gives the movie a real feel. Highly recommended.
